PATRIOTS 42, EAGLES 35: At Foxborough, Mass., Tom Brady threw a touchdown pass after sitting out the first preseason game and New England capitalized on four turnovers. Brady’s backups also were sharp in their competition for the No. 2 quarterback job. Rookie Jimmy Garoppolo threw two touchdown passes, and Ryan Mallett passed and ran for scores. Brady’s scoring pass came after he threw an interception that Cory Williams returned 77 yards for a touchdown.
SAINTS 31, TITANS 24: At New Orleans, Jimmy Graham caught two touchdown passes, celebrating both with banned celebratory dunks over the goal post, for the Saints. With star quarterback Drew Brees resting his sore abdomen, Luke McCown started for New Orleans (2-0) and threw both of scoring passes to Graham. However, Graham’s celebrations drew penalty flags, and coach Sean Payton appeared annoyed after the second one, barking in Graham’s direction on the sideline.
RAIDERS 27, LIONS 26: At Oakland, Calif., Matthew Stafford threw touchdown passes on his first two drives for Detroit before Matt McGloin threw a 19-yard TD pass to Brice Butler with 6 seconds to go to lift Oakland. McGloin came in after backup Derek Carr left with injured ribs earlier in the fourth quarter and led the game-winning 68-yard drive. The victory wasn’t complete until Sebastian Janikowski kicked the 33-yard extra point.
